I am an Executive Security Architect for IBM Cloud where I provide thought leadership for security in a hybrid multi-cloud world that is open, secure and managed.

Working in the information security field for over 25 years has provided me with a wide range of experience including roles involving the development of security strategy and solutions architecture, design of security for retail, insurance and banking systems, security architecture method development, information security management and leading the delivery of identity and access management service across Europe.

I enjoy the challenge of transforming information security and in my latest role I able to lead a team of talented professionals to do this for clients globally. My focus is on ensuring projects are correctly specified and successfully delivered through a combination of technology, process and people together with effective governance. Ensuring we have a team of skilled and experienced professionals, who are able to work on challenging client engagements where they are able to develop, is an essential
part of my role.

I led the development and delivery of an assessed degree module at the University of Warwick that is also taught internally in IBM where students receive a digital badge on completion.

My skills and experience have been recognised through being awarded CISSP, CISM, CITP and Fellowship of the BCS.
